Custom Acoustic Panels Deliver Sound Control in a Beautiful Way

O’Reilly Hospitality Management in Springfield, MO, manages properties across the US and in 2018 they announced plans to open a new, world class convention center at the DoubleTree hotel in Springfield, MO. Mr. The team turned to Paragon for unique solutions that would control acoustics in the rooms while paying great attention to the aesthetics of the space.

The design, fabrication and install of twenty-eight custom Fabri-Clouds was all done by Paragon. The lightweight, yet extremely sturdy, island ceiling clouds included penetration points for custom lighting and sprinkler heads. The entire 10,000 sq. ft room was filled with multiple, overlapping Fabri-Clouds of various sizes, at different elevations, providing excellent acoustics with rich aesthetic value. The panels have done an excellent job of controlling the room while simultaneously enhancing the beauty.


The space interior was established by the architecture and design partners. Acoustical solutions needed to be developed to support the concept.


Using acoustic analysis, the Paragon team determined the necessary acoustic solutions. Simultaneously considering the execution of the solution to bring beauty to the space.
